DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with one bill of costs payable to the respondents appearing separately and filing separate briefs.
In view of the limited disclosure conducted, triable issues of fact exist as to whether the alleged defective condition existed at the time of the conveyance of the subject property from the appellant to the defendant Renaissance Equity Holdings, LLC (hereinafter Renaissance), and, if so, whether Renaissance, as the new owner of the property, had a reasonable opportunity prior to the accident to remedy that condition (see Bittrolff v Ho's Dev. Corp., 77 NY2d 896, 898; see Kilmer v White, 254 NY 64; Gramazio v 370 Lexington Avenue, LLC, 40 AD3d 303; Fisher v Braun, 227 AD2d 586, 587; Farragher v City of New York, 26 AD2d 494, 496, affd on opn below 21 NY2d 756). Accordingly, resolution of these issues must await further discovery.
SPOLZINO, J.P., RITTER, MILLER and BALKIN, JJ., concur.
